Unapologetic Deviant. Unscripted Provocateur. Mind Stimulator. Soul Liberator. Eclectic.
Caroline Bennett is making her dreams come true as an Inspirational Speaker, Poet, Entrepreneur, Storyteller, Singer and #FreeBlackGirlRising. A native of North Tulsa, Oklahoma, Caroline was raised on the side of Tulsa many considered to be the most underserved and impoverished area within the city limits. She is a two-time loan and debt free, first generation, African American female graduate of higher education. Having received a Bachelor’s degree in Human Relations from the University of Oklahoma, and a Master’s degree in Women’s, Gender & Sexuality studies from The Ohio State University, she has been intentional about her work inside and outside of academic and institutionalized spaces. At the age of 16, Caroline discovered the power of her voice through not only poetry but singing as well. Through her gifts, she is able to bridge gaps and serve/access communities that mirror the one she grew up in. Having been in Columbus, Ohio for 3 years, Caroline has been blessed in her connections with the City of Columbus’ Arts communities. Grateful and humbled by her greatest endeavors, Caroline identifies the highest achievement among these accomplishments would be the love and relationship she has developed with herself! Ms. Bennett’s transparency invites the audience to see how the journey to self may be far from easy, yet it will always be more than worth it and beautiful. She encourages Black girls to #StayInTheirTRUTH, #SlayInTheirPURPOSE & #StepIntoTheirSERENITY. You can find her most recent work on YouTube, where she produced a mini video for a final project in graduate school entitled, #TheNostalgicBlackGurl or watch her recent Tedx talks on YouTube. Keep your eyes open as she will be launching her first book in 2020.
